But didn't Jorah refer to the captain of the ship he found as 'she'? I'm curious to see if they let slip that little detail when season 3 comes or if they add in some little detail about how it's not a woman sailing and fix it.

I like the casting decisions...Grey Worm is a little off, but I like it. And I can totally see Ed as Daario...I am at his big parts in book 5, he def looks like the cocky, sneaky guy that Dany loves. LOVE Mance! LOOOOVE Beric! Jojen good call, Thoros- awesome! Just like I pictured. Well done!!

Come on, what about the female staff? I know it is not about the beauty but at least Meera might have been chosen prettier! :( ... I am a huge fan of GoT but there is not even one of the girls that is hot in that series!!! Margery is cute and has very intriguing face but this is as far as it goes ... and the mother of dragons has more childish then female appearance ... not to mention Melisandre, she is the biggest disappointment ... where is the burning flame in her? Even I might have chosen better: Christina Hendricks, Laura Prepon, even the "housewife" Marcia Cross looks more attractive to me

Noooo. Daario is supposed to be super-hot. Not that the actor pictured above isn't cute, but, he looks way too young, for starters, and--he's cute, but not hot :( Jacob looks too pretty to be Greyworm, too. ah, well...
